From Fowlers office doors turn right and walk down The Square passing the delicatessen and Old Forge Caffe. Shortly after the Caffe the commercial buildings end and there is a gravelled apron. At the bottom of the apron is a blue cast iron gate which leads to a pedestrian path that serves the cottages on Orchard Terrace. Just through the second cast iron gate is 2 Orchard Terrace and you will find the porch on the left and the lovely garden on your right.
